Creationtide

Hills and churchThe ‘Season of Creation’ is the period in the annual church calendar, from 1 September to 4 October, dedicated to God as Creator and Sustainer of all life. It is a time encompasses many harvest festivals and builds up to the feast of St Francis of Assisi. As Christians, we acknowledge that the environment is our common home, and we need to tread more gently on the Earth and care for our shared planet.

Creationtide is originally an Eastern Orthodox initiative, but has now spread widely among Anglican, Roman Catholic and Protestant congregations, bringing Christians together to pray and work for the protection of the environment that sustains everyone. The CofE lectionary hasn’t quite caught up with Creationtide but clergy and readers can find suitable resources such as Bible readings and ideas for sermons here.
